There was no talk which got Khan riled up in the Molina fight and he still got whacked enough. In the Peterson fight it was no different. Maidana, Judah, Kotelnik and the list goes on.. He gets hit, and there was nothing in his mentality that night which made him lose that. Amir himself along with his team are trying to comfort themselves in trying to think that - all natural of course, but just not true unfortunately for them.
I disagree, Khan showed respect vs Kotelnik Paulie and Zab, not vs Peterson and Garcia.
Sign of respect?? Working off the jab and not jumping in, not trying to KO Peterson and Garcia in the first few rounds.
